Moved by an image of hundreds of books being thrown out of the windows of Lismore Library, BAD Sydney Crime decided to help by putting on an event with Candice Fox, Chris Hammer and Michael Robothom, moderated by Kate Evans from ABC’s “The Bookshelf." The event raised $16,000 for the Library and this episode is a recording of that event. Lismore Library are still in need of support.
